On a Sunday morning perfect for rock climbing, Hugo tries one of the most hard and desired climbing routes at the sugar loaf in Rio de Janeiro: "Uruca". Extremely difficult and dangerous it will demand all of his skill and concentration. The film shows all the difficult in a ascension like that in Rio de Janeiro.
Based on stories told by friends and on my own climbing experience, this short movie features typical problems that climbers face on the routes of Rio de Janeiro. 
The production lasted 10 months and was digitally animated. Felipe Assad, one of the greatest climbers in Rio, dubbed himself in the film.
